2nd yr senior in accounting reporting advisory. Does it make sense to apply for a financial analyst II role in amazon ?
The role is mostly finance, budgeting and forcasting and running numbers so skills at ara are not 100% transferable so it make sense
But it does feel like a level down. The comp is expected to be 30% higher including all the incentives.
I want to be well versed in terms of finance and accounting aiming for cfo in 15 yrs
What is the average salary one should expect for a product marketing manager in the ATX area?
I currently work for a company that has 91 employees and I’m the only HR person here. I only make 56K a year and I’m for sure getting screwed since I live in Lancaster, PA. I have a bachelors in Comm/HR with 3 YOE in HR.
What should my salary range be? This is great experience but I’d like to know if it’s even worth the stress. I’m looking to work remote and would love to still be involved in HR. What’s a good asking price for a remote HR generalist position with my experience?
I m wondering how come people who are offered such big packages can't calculate even their own salary and keep posting guys what's my in-hand?
Shouldn't HRs reconsider the offers in these cases? Atleast I would.

I am a Reliability Maintenance 3P contractor for Amazon. I graduated with my Bachelor’s in Electrical Engineering on June 2022. I’ve been working with Amazon for a year, but there’s a lack of prospective EE positions within the company. The job postings I see are either less or barely above my current salary. I’m not sure if staying longer is beneficial for my future career as an Electrical engineer. I plan on getting my FE license within the next 6 months. Any suggestions will be appreciated

Have you found that the work you did/do in consulting was more aligned with what you hoped for a careen vs being in industry?
Just discovered a public slack channel (that very much should have been private) that a few women at my work have been using to bitch about the co-workers they don’t like. There’s a lot of very mean posts about several of the CDs, account people, producers etc. There’s quite a few hateful posts about me and my partner too 🙈 should I tell them?

NY state took my tax refund because of an outstanding liability. Is there a way to get my money back?
Not sure if this is FIRE appropriate but just trying to get opinions
I’m trying to figure out how much I wanna spend on a house.
HHI: 190k (yearly)
Bonus: 30k (yearly)
Restricted stocks: 10k (yearly)
Savings: 300k (200k cash/70k stocks/30k crypto)
Assuming I’m going to do a conforming 20% loan, how much should I spend on a house? I’m out of NJ where the property taxes are anywhere between 10k to 20k per year.
From a FIRE perspective is it worth moving back in with toxic parents (to both save on NYC rent prices and help them out a bit financially)? Imagine being constantly miserable/mentally stressed anytime I will be at home, and a 2 hour commute each way to work, but parents don’t at all restrict my freedom (can stay with friends, go on mini-cations with boyfriend, etc. as often as I can/want).

Thoughts on QYLD, XYLD and RYLD? How bullish are you 🐠 on it? How much of your portfolio would you put it them to start creating passive income in your 30’s?
My father is an accredited investor and invests in private companies. I said I’d give him $50k for one of the investments but technically it’s all in his name. 3x return. Any way to touch that money without double taxation (expecting to pay his highest tax bracket on the returns since shorter than 1 year and then gift tax above $30k)? Thinking about asking him to put it in a separate bank account in his name linked to my credit card - but still likely too much money to burn through.
Went on vacation with a couple friends and they’d actually never heard of FIRE. They both spend a ton of money on things I don’t find worth it (totally fine) but the thing that bugged me was that as they make more money I can hear how many excuses they make for purchasing stuff, vs being honest about why. “I literally have zero time to go to the grocery store” “i often need random things to be delivered to me on the same day and have zero time to pick it up”. It made me worry that maybe we…

Will this negatively impact my credit score? I use my credit cards like debit and pay everything in full weekly.
I think it’d depend how long you’ve had the other cards open and how many other cards you have total. Might take a slight temporary dip?
I've had my oldest card for 5 years and the current average age of my cards is 2.5 years. Student loans are 6 years but those will all be paid off by the end of this year, lowering the average age. 5 cards total. Not trying to take out any loans now, rather building a base for 3-4 years down the line.
Hopefully you don’t want a major line of credit in the next year, otherwise like A1 said, temporary dip and it’ll take off and go higher in a bit assuming cards continue to be paid in full etc...
